    University of Strathclyde
    Departments of Applied Physiology & Bioengineering
    EPSRC Ph.D. studentship (£10,500 p.a.)

    The Departments of Applied Physiology and Bioengineering welcome
    applications from highly motivated graduates for a 3-year EPSRC funded Ph.D.
    studentship in soft tissue mechanics. The research will focus on the
    experimental determination of the mechanical characteristics of IVD tissue
    under different loading environments. Experimental results will be utilised
    in mathematical models that predict IVD behaviour.

    The successful applicant will have graduated with a 1st class, or a 2(i),
    Honours degree (or equivalent) in an Engineering or a Biological Science
    subject, and must be an EU citizen. A Master's qualification in relevant
    area would be considered as an advantage. Because of the cross-disciplinary
    nature of this project, an engineering candidate is expected to have some
    biological sciences experience, and vice versa. Whatever your background,
    you must be able to work in diverse and technically demanding academic
    environment. Excellent laboratory skills and a strong background in
    mathematics are both desirable characteristics.

    The studentship is fully supported by the EPSRC and covers the tuition fees
    and provides a maintenance allowance of £10,500 per annum.

    Please send your letter of interest and CV, including the names and
    addresses of two academic referees, to Dr P. Riches (address below). The
    closing date for applications is 1 Jan 2004.
